Whatever happened to buy beware? A Massachusetts state judge and former state senator is faced with criminal charges for failing to note the crib she sold via Craiglist lacked a vibrating baby pad. As reported in the Boston Herald:
“Former state Sen. Cheryl Ann Jacques is due to appear in Newton District Court tomorrow to be arraigned on a misdemeanor charge of larceny by false pretense brought by a pregnant woman who claims Jacques sold her an incomplete baby’s Pack ’n Play Playard on Craigslist.”
This despite the fact that Jacques apparently refunded the purchaser the money and the buyer came to the house to look at the crib before it was purchased. Jacques could face up to a year in jail and a $300 fine for the charge of larceny-by-false-pretenses.
